Our resident survey starts this week

  • In our last newsletter we told you that the housing research company, Acuity, would be getting in touch with all residents to get your feedback on the works that have been done so far and the design of the replacement cladding and windows. We are using an independent company so residents feel they can speak freely and openly and give honest feedback.
  • Your feedback will help us ensure we address any unresolved issues from the previous works and inform how the next phase of works are carried out as well as how Camden works with you and your neighbours.
  • Acuity will be contacting residents from this week to talk through a short survey. If you would like to find out more information about Acuity you can visitor call01273 287 114.

Front door repairs

  • Locksmith services and general door repairs will now be carried out by Camden repairs service. This has moved to Camden because we have reached the end of the defects period for the doors, and they have been handed back to us by the contractor who installed them.
  • If you require any repair to your door please contact the repairs line on 020 7974 4444option 7 or email chalcotsestate@camden.gov.uk
